They lived on the island with their daughters, Kayla and Marla, and son, Mark, in the shadow of the Lighthouse and opened a family fruit stand and gift shop on Anastasia Boulevard. W.

Betty volunteered in many civic organizations. She was instrumental in organizing and creating programs to help the lives of the developmentally challenged in St. Augustine and Northeast Florida.
Later in her life, Betty opened Sea Bridge Landing Antiques, where she was able to pursue her passion for researching and dealing in antiques. She had an avid interest in art and rocks. She had a genuine love for life and family and friends. She will be greatly missed by those she leaves behind.
